To remote mount home directories remotely using NFS they need to be created prior to the first login of the user on the remote system. This listener creates the home directory based on the automounter information.


After enabling the Cool Solutions Repository you can install the package with the following command:

univention-install univention-homedir-autocreate


By setting the "Unix Home Directory" or "Home share" and "Home share path" in the Account tab of the UMC the listener gets triggered and creates the respective directory. Additional folders can be created using "univention-skel" upon the first login of the user.
